Alla Kovgan und David Hinton

USA/UK/Mozambique 2008, 35 min.

Shot in Southern Africa, “Nora” is based on childhood memories of the self-exiled dancer Nora Chipaumire who was born in Zimbabwe in 1965. Using performance and dance, she brings her history to life in a swiftly-moving poem of sound and image. The original score was composed by a Zimbabwean legend - Thomas Mapfumo.

TvTv – Trajets de Vie Trajets de Ville

Frankreich 2008, 31:30 min.

Trajets de Vie: on benches, or all around, in the middle of the passage of the pedestrians, the cars, the buses, four solitudes sketch a sometimes acrobatic gesticulation, sometimes at the edge of the invisible: poetic gasps where the crackling of a radio will go out of a basket, where sheets of newspapers will stick on the face as a braggart’s mask, where colored capsules of bottle scatter as a rain of childhood.
Trajets de Ville constitutes the other hillside. A hostility charges the atmosphere. An immense inhuman space widens in this crowd where the men, the women, cross themselves without seeing each other, by ignoring. Worse still: they crowd, collide, assault, either the love bursts. Duets come out hardly: fragments of a virile fight or a friendship, a sensualism and a rivalry mixed in a tango souvenir? This is the opposite of all for which we could expect from a contemporary show (nothing of hightech, any video, just this old rock tone, and these old bodies which are ours, close to the deterioration), but who so speak to us about what we are today.
